Today is National Pizza Day, and what’s a better way to celebrate the day than with pizza from the legendary Chicago-style Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria?

A fan favorite is the Deep Dish Malnati Chicago Classic made with Lou’s lean sausage, some extra mozzarella cheese, and vine-ripened tomato sauce on Buttercrust. 

Another favorite is the Deep Dish “Lou” made with spinach mix, mushrooms, sliced roma tomatoes covered with a blend of mozzarella, romano and cheddar cheese on garlic Buttercrust.  It’s the best vegetarian pizza and so good that they gave it Lou’s name. 

In addition to the original Chicago-style deep dish, Lou’s menu includes delicious thin crust, “crustless,” gluten-free and heart-shaped options. 

“Crustless” pizza is perfect for those on a gluten-free or low-carb diet, the “Crustless” pizza is made with Lou’s lean sausage as the base, and then topped with mozzarella cheese and vine-ripened tomato sauce. 

Gluten-Free is a delicious alternative to the famous Buttercrust, but without the gluten and handmade from scratch with the same signature care and topped with the same high-quality ingredients. 

Heart-shaped pizzas are the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day (or Super Bowl) 

Half-baked and frozen pizzas are available for guests to take home at their convenience and cook in the oven or on the grill. 

Lou Malnati’s also ships their famous frozen pizzas nationwide and you can order online through

Fun Statistic: Americans share a love for pizza unlike any other. According to reports, around 350 slices of pizza are eaten in the U.S. every second, putting the number at 21,000 slices per minute {source here
